Searching

searching for a sound

a song, a tune

looking for a smile

to combine the two

easy on the ears

laughter in the eyes

searching and looking

found a great surprise

music in my ears

laughter on my lips

happiness in time

Red Flag Day

red flag

Eyes closed, the sounds at the beach

Waves roaring like lions

Crashing as they hit the pebbles

Wind whistling around my ears

Howling around the wind breakers

Seagull’s screeches muffled

Carried away by the wind

Squeals of children playing

Clang clang of the rope on the flagpole

.

Opening my eyes I see the waves

They hurtle towards the pebbles

Spray bounces into the sky

The clouds race across the blue sky

Sun disappearing behind the clouds

The flag flapping at the top of the flagpole

It’s a red flag day.

Newness and Silence

gorse

Bright yellow  flowers burst over the gorse

Like sun rays, covering the forest

Bright new leaves softly swaying

Blue skies stretch beyond the beyond

.

Rabbits hide in clumps of heather

tiny buds of pink and white appear

Deer graze on the heath in the distance

Hide, protected by woodland thickets

.

The smell of newness on the warm breeze

The sound of silence echoes in my ears

Come share this space, this time with me

Let the newness and silence be us
